I've been happily using Geany for a little while now, coding mostly in
Python. I have a couple questions:
1. For a dark color scheme, eg Vibrant Ink, how do i get the active
line to not be highlighted. White text + white highlighting =
invisible text on the line I'm trying to edit. Arrgh!
2. Any debugger advice for python? I am finding winpdb is pretty slow
and actually crashes on my machine a fair amount.
I'm on a windows 7 64 bit installation.

Sorry for my late reply -- I just turned on Digest mode so it took a
while to see your message.
1. I have Geany 1.23, Ubuntu 12.04. Yes, my file is .py
I went into Geany and did these extra things: Turn off "Tab key indents"
in Indentation, Turn on "Snippet completion" in Completions.
Still, when I hit a tab key, it just inserts white spaces (sometimes 1,
2. What's the best way to raise interest in a feature like Code minimap?
I looked at the Feature Request page on SourceForge and they seem to
request mainly support for miscellaneous language. Whereas some of the
slick Sublime-like features (minimap, multiple cursors, put both quotes
around a highlighted word) would seem to be universally appealing.
Thanks, - Anh

Hello Geany users,
I have just installed Geany on Ubuntu and when I open the preferences I
have tab General, Interface, ..., Various but after Various* I do not have
the Terminal tab (see image below)*, which is what I wanted to access to
paste and copy commands to the terminal to execute small pieces of code.
Have I made a mistake in installing geany (i used on the command line: sudo
apt-get install geany)
Thank you very much for help.

I have a custom language. I have created my own compiler and added
syntax highlighting for geany with filedefs/filetypes.
My question: is it possible to write an external symbol parser and
integrate it with the symbols panel inside Geany? That would be very cool.
If the feature is not there, how hard would it be to give a "custom
symbol parser" command and regexp input field in the build commands menu?
I was trying to compile geany (https://github.com/b4n/geany/tree/wip/gtk3-support), but I get errors like this:
tm_file_entry.c:35:66: error: expected ‘;’, ‘,’ or ‘)’ before ‘user_data’
void tm_file_entry_print(TMFileEntry *entry, gpointer __unused__ user_data
It continues compilation when I remove "__unused__", but the error happens again and again (probably hundreds of times). Are there special compiler parameters necessary? Why does it not just work with "make"?
I was also wondering if I caught the correct source code, since it seems to be missing commits for over a year.
I used: Ubuntu 14.04, GNU Make 3.81
I just committed  a long-awaited fix for Windows build commands, and
with this in we will able to really plan our next release.
However, and although I tested this quite a bit, I'm not 100% positive
this fix will be effective for all cases and Windows versions. So, if
some of you could test the development version under Windows  and
report whether it works for you or not, it would be totally awesome.
This way, we could hopefully prevent repeating the same mistake than
with version 1.23 where some build commands couldn't work properly under
Thank you very much.
 If you rely on the Nightly Builds (http://nightly.geany.org/win32/),
you may need to wait a little until the next build (2014-02-20) happens.
